I just wanted to add that Jaap Pieters is on tour in the US now.
Tour dates and venues are listed on his site 
<http://www.jaappieters.com>www.jaappieters.com.
His next stops are Vermont, Boston, Pittsburgh, Toledo, Chicago, 
Madison and Milwaukee.
Jaap and his films are really worth getting to know, if you are in 
the vicinity!
